It was my intention to continue introducing my readers to my collection. You met my playline dolls who reside permanently here in my last post. I was going to move on to my next group of girls, but a friend and I were talking about some Barbie Models on Location giftsets from five or six years ago. I was telling her how versatile the pieces were and which dolls looked good in the outfits. That phone conversation led to this blog.
There were four giftsets in this collection and each giftset included a Model Muse Body Barbie. I was able to find all four giftsets when they were first released- two were on clearance and one even showed up at my local Tuesday Morning. The most popular doll was in the Models on Location: Monte Carlo. (Since these were designed for Model Muse dolls, everything fits that body type, so I didn't include any photos of Model Muse Dolls)
Wearing the Monte Carlo pants and top is Dynamite Girl Feelin' Fierce Dani.
Next up, we have DG Boogie Beach Aria wearing the South Beach casual jeans and peasant blouse. Aria is also a DG. I had originally planned on using only DGs for all of the photos and "killing two birds with one post" by introducing that segment of my collection, but then I wanted to show other dolls wearing the clothing.
Silkstones are a "hit" or "miss" with this collection. The pants are usually too tight. It's a struggled getting their hands through the jackets, but they are the correct length. The tops are a tad snug but "do-able". The skirts fit nicely as does this South Beach dress.
This brings me to the fashionista body. Again, the pants are a struggle. The skirts, blouses, and swimsuits fit fine. Actually, the swimsuits fit this body better than any because their hips are a little thicker.
By this time, I realized I hadn't photographed anyone except DGs wearing the pants, so I pulled out my favorite Misaki, Harajuku Honey. Those who have been posting for some time on the boards may remember her from her model training in Europe where she found her Lavender Poodle, Henri.
This is the upgrade Jett from the last Integrity Convention. She is on the "refreshed" taller body with better knees. Although she cannot wear the pants, she definitely looks great in the skirt outfit from Milan.
I decided to end the blog with another DG. This is Electro Pop Aria. I gave her a "faux"hawk in the front. She looks like Li'l Kim to me. She is wearing the Barcelona swimsuit which is one of my very favorite pieces.
I call her Kym. She is a very difficult doll to adjust to with that pink hair, but I just love her.
